We tore it down, stomped it with our big boot, and then pissed on it for good measure.
The countries of the world need to be reminded of this more, not less often.
Errr...I guess you mean Great Britain?
When Germany invaded Poland the USA was neutral, and it would be two long years before the Americans entered the war leaving Great Britain to do it alone.
Great Britain lost its Empire to defend Europe while America became a super power. Also I seriously doubt Germany would have lost the war were it not for the USSR attacking it from the East after the Germans broke the pact.
On the swastika issue...I guess we should abide with the rules issued by the CC admin, although I am sure most people don't find it offensive in any way. It's part of history now.
